Hi Everyone, This is my first time blogging and am feeling a bit anxious about it.

I’m Maddie from Rockhampton and am currently enrolled into my first year of study to do a Bachelor of Accounting with CQUniversity part-time via distance education. I have previously worked full-time as an Administration Officer. I have been lucky enough to score myself a job working as an Undergraduate Accountant from July 2018. My firm specialises in agricultural rural accounting for beef cattle farmers in regional QLD. I have learnt a lot of on the job training and work has significantly helped in understanding university. I have an amazing husband who owns his own company working as a Software Engineer for coal trains worldwide. I also have 2 beautiful dogs that enjoy taking me for walks.

I have always loved anything to do with accounting and figures. I have always wanted to go to Uni and have attempted 2 other times hence why I have named my blog “Third time lucky”. I started my first Uni degree in 2011 at University of Wollongong in NSW where I was currently living

I find it challenging to juggle full-time work, part-time study and simply being a wife cooking, cleaning, washing, folding, ironing etc (I am sure most of you all know what this can be like).  I am determined this time to be dedicated to my studies and will not allow anything to get in my way.  I have found myself an amazing and supportive husband who I know will be there for me throughout my studies and going forward.

I am really looking forward to getting to know everyone’s stories and getting through this by supporting each other.
